KMUD (shortwave) Mojave Phone Booth Broadcast, The Voice of Doom, KIPM-STUDIO-origin, PHFER Desert (A1A) Beacons
The three guys at KMUD-shortwave (Ed, Kirk, and Steve) received an ongoing barrage of telephone calls, as the world-famous and remote Mojave Phone Booth constantly rang with callers from around the World to the now defunct telephone number +1 (760) 733-9969.
One of the KMUD dudes (Ed) actually made it onto the Art Bell Show the first evening of their arrival to the Booth, and announced to listeners the upcoming pirate-radio "live-call-in" broadcast they were preparing to do the next evening.
These recordings were made live, before and during the broadcasts, and there are a few recordings of the segment of the Art Bell Show that Ed called into.
You may have seen many internet postings, photos, and have seen a movie about this remote phone booth, but this was the real-deal - KMUD-shortwave.
As this telephone installation employed very lengthy, above-ground telephone steel wires (old-style), it had a tendency to pick-up Earth's "natural VLF radio" signals - we actually heard very faint "whistlers" and lightning-static during the weekend we were there!

You will also be able to hear clips of KMUD-shortwave as heard in two locations in Arizona, by two different DXers on 43M (AM) and 73m (AM/SSB).
Also are recordings of those p-hifer (A1A) desert-beacons from various locations.
In 2003, I obtained about 10 CDrs of KIPM's Studio-releases of Alan Maxwell's excellent and ethereal shows. I ripped them to (128 kbps (FBR) MP3 files, and burned them to CDr. The HDD of the machine I did this on eventually crashed, and I misplaced the CDr of KIPM's studio shows until 28 September 2010. Enjoy.

Also is a show: "Morak - The Thing Behind the Wall" in which I played Morak.
